Signal Transduction, Third Edition is a thorough, well-illustrated study in cellular signaling processes. Beginning with the basics, this book shows how cells respond to external cues, hormones, growth factors, cytokines, cell surfaces, etc., and further instructs how these inputs are integrated.

Instruction continues with up-to-date, inclusive coverage of intracellular calcium, nuclear receptors, tyrosine protein kinases and adaptive immunity, and targeting transduction pathways for research and medical intervention. This book will serve as an invaluable resource for advanced undergraduates, graduate researchers, and established scientists working in cell biology, pharmacology, immunology, and related fields.

Includes up-to-date, inclusive coverage of targeting transduction pathways for research and medical intervention Provides in-depth coverage of nuclear receptors, including steps in isolation of steroid hormones and the discovery of intracellular hormone receptors, tyrosine protein kinases and adaptive immunity, and intracellular calciumPresents extensive conceptual color artwork to assist with comprehension of key topics Includes instrumental margin notes that highlight milestones in signaling mechanisms
